Dear families of Shelburne Long-Term Care,

We have very much enjoyed welcoming families back to our home over the past few days, and the smiles and joy we have seen during these visits has been a powerful reminder that love and family play an important role not only in our physical health, but in our emotional and mental well-being as well.

Our care staff have also enjoyed spending time with residents outdoors, hearing about their visits and sharing stories about their loved ones.

One family member travelled all the way from Kingston for a visit with his loved one, and even though the weather didn’t fully cooperate, the visit was enjoyed by all.

As we continue to move forward, we want to remind our family partners that we are here to support them in visiting and staying connected with their loved ones. Each family’s needs, schedules and experiences are unique, and we are committed to working with everyone to find what works best for themselves and their loved ones. Whether that’s an in-person visit, a visit at the window, a FaceTime visit, or a phone call—we are always happy to help make these arrangements.
